Honestly I think the GD did it better. Obviously I'm in the minority. I think Weir is the X factor. He really drives a lot of the great deals and when I listen to the Jerry band I miss his sound. Here is a great example of Weir on probably my fav version of Deal. It's in 2 parts

It's tough comparing the JGB to The Dead because they are so different; the obvious similarity are the lead guitarist & vocalist and some of the song selections, that's it.

Melvin, the Gals, John Kahn, David Kemper etc. have a unique sound and styling of their own. Great Band! As did many of Jerry's previous collaboration's.

Great Dead Deals?

ah ... maybe a minority, but I agree with you. I love Deal, I love JGB, and I also think there's a number of tunes JGG did better than the Dead. This isn't one of them.
